Bottled. Poured clear, deep brown with garnet highlights and a short beige head. The aroma picked up ashy black patent roast, smoked malts, and bakers chocolate.. light vanilla and earthy accents.. not greatly exciting, but not bad. The flavor found mostly chocolate and smoked malts, with lots of ashy roast and earthy bitterness around.. just a tad peppery on the finish. Medium-bodied and very dry on the palate.. lots of roast.. good feel and flow.

Pours black from bottle with a thin khaki rapidly disappearing head. not a lot going on with the aroma. Not getting a lot of maltiness on the tongue. Finish is dry. It tastes like a xerox of a Guinness to me and not a particularly good one.

For being a smoked Porter I actually enjoy this beer. Normally smokey is not my style but this one is done right.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate notes, roasted malts. Flavor is a little thin, but roasted, with a nice chocolate malt flavor. Decent, refreshing for a porter.

Dark brown color with a huge fizzy tan head. This was a bit of a gusher and took time to settle down. Light coffee roast, chocolate, and oat aroma. Smells pretty good. The flavors arent bad but are thrown off by the fizzy carbonation, which seems pretty high, and is prickly on the palate. There are no surprise flavors; coffee roast, chocolate, and I do pick up the smoke here. Theres some nice stuff going on but its limited and a bit thin. Really, not too bad, but nothing Id really look forward to trying again.

Pours a black opaque. Sweet aroma, possibly from chocolate. Taste, especially the aftertaste, is more smokey. Palate had some medium fizz that bothered me, but not enough to not enjoy this beer.

This was my favorite of the ones I tasted. Light chocolate and coffee notes. poured dark brown. Roasty taste, nothing overpowering.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to joecaddie for the bottle. Pours dark brown with a light tan head and a bit of lace. Good retention. Nose brings some chocolate a good deal of darker malt. Taste is a bit more plain with some slight chocolate and a bit of semi-roasted malt. Good body and carbonation. Drinks pretty well and is a nice introduction to the brewery.
